Are you this stupid or is it you just don't know? US born children of illegal aliens allow them to use a loophole and get funding from the government. Illegal aliens often use state welfare need programs that do not require immigration status.

You do realize Obamacare does not even take effect until 2014 don't you? Any increases in your premiums are due to good old fashioned gouging by your insurance company. Even so it has hardly "changed the face of America".
Obamacare is a big giveaway to private insurance. Worst then the giveaway by George W. Bush and his medicare advantage part "D".

Obamacare is just one more reason why there will be a republican President in 2016. It's not that the republicans are looking good, it's just that the democrats are f##king up. Amnesty, unemployment, gun control and Obamacare is doing them in.

PENALTY FOR BEING UNINSURED:

"The ACA requires that people who have been deemed able to purchase health insurance but decide not to buy it starting in 2014 will owe a penalty (a tax) to the IRS. Here’s what this looks like:

a) In 2014, the annual penalty will be $95 per adult and $47.50 per child, up to a family maximum of $285 or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater.
b) In 2015, the penalty will be $325 per adult and $162.50 per child, up to a family maximum of $975 or 2 percent of family income, whichever is greater.
c) In 2016, the penalty will be $695 per adult and $347.50 per child, up to a family maximum of $2,085 or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater."

Not true. I haved worked in Health Care for year's. Hospitals and insurance C/'s planned for the changes years ago knowing fully well, Obama would require higher premiums to all Americans for immediate funding of his Program. You must be on Medicare not to realize how much premiums and health care co-pays and treatment have increased. Also Medical professionals and clinics will stop taking Medicaid, and Medicare Patients anymore as it's simply unsustainable any longer. So poor people, and illegals immigrant's will be standing in lines at free clinic's provided to them by the Socialist Obama... have fun and get ready for the ride!!!

What does Obamacare have to do with poor people? They already have Medicaid. It is all about the middle class people who have to pay a fortune for individual insurance policies. I know about high premiums. I pay $2800 a month for medical insurance. That is more than some people pay for their mortgage. It is not a very good policy either. In 2014 when I am able to buy insurance from the state exchange my rates will drop to $421.

I get the feeling you get your insurance for free. That seems to be a common thread with the anti-insurance hardliners. I have yet to meet anybody who is so opposed to health insurance that they burn their own insurance card. Yet these same people are opposed to other people now being allowed to buy insurance with their own money. It is mind boggling.

The sob stories do not move me whatsoever,not anymore. After so many cases of illegals coming across the border killing Americans after being deported numerous time,,,, sob stories go in one ear and out the other.
Yesterday here in my city the morgue decided to set up a website for those unidentified bodies piling up in their coolers. Now, that is what I call sad. Some living in the gang./drug infested mean streets,sleeping under viaducts and surviving in the best way he can.Some found living alone with no family. These are our people. These people at on point did live a productive life(you could tell by their tattoos,where they were found,etc.),some were vets,some had people who loved them/cared for them at one point,but due to bad choices in lives ,,, they paid the ultimate price. These are Americans,this was their country. Illegals are not our responsibility. Illegals have a country/Government,family and a roof over there heads. With all the remittance I wouldn't doubt they live much better then our homeless here or our elderly. So no, those sob stories they continue to throw at us simply do not phase me anymore.When we take care of our own first and foremost and the illegals take responsibility for their action,,, I will consider listening.They need to go back,fight for what is theirs and demand from their Government and not come here and take from our poor brothers and sisters going through hard times.
Again, Windy I agree 100%......OUR HOMELESS, VETS and ELDERLY COME FIRST!!!! You're right some of these were veterans who have done their duty by serving our country but ended homeless due to lack of gov. funds helping them re-adjust to a somewhat normal living after what horrors they've been put through. I feel for them, sometimes I feel our country and government has forgotten them and this is no way to thank them for all they have lost.....their families (for the inability to adjust or communicate) with anyone who could possibly UNDERSTAND THEM. Were it not for them who sacrificed everything DEAR IN THEIR LIVES, we wouldn't be enjoying our lives and freedoms we take for granted. Then you have these illegal invaders who feel they need a piece of our way of life WHEN THEY AREN'T OWED ONE DAMN THING, especially WHEN THEY BRAG OF NOT PAYING INCOME TAX because they can't afford to! and brag their loyalty to Mexico but are here taking an American student's job! DEMANDING THE RIGHTS WE CITIZENS ARE FIGHTING TO KEEP, OURSELVES with this unpatriotic administration in the WH!

He is a spiteful human being. Example: closing the White House to visitors. That's the type of 'sensitive' guy in the White House.
The public has been served a lie by the media.
President Obama is one angry man. Built up resentment, is not to be used to run this country.

Wrong again. 1200 per month for me and my wife. Plus out of pocket higher co-pays than I've ever paid. I worked in health care and I have good insurance but I still pay more than I've ever paid in my life. Drug Company's and insurance Company's never want Obama to take hold. It's literally taking from Peter to pay Paul. And he's enforcing the deductibles right now on the Citizenry and mostly the backs of the middle class. Medicaid and Medicare patients will lose their regular Doc's when Obama's plan is fully implemented. I know more about what happening than you think you do. And 2800 a month is about close to how much he needs to take from every American to continue to pay for illegals and fraud cases.I guess you think it's okay to pay that kind of premium? Think about it, you're getting screwed.

Yes. My insurance company is screwing me at $2800 a month, but I am thrilled that I was able to buy insurance for any price. I can only thank Obama for that. Next year when I am paying $421 for a superior policy I will be even happier.

From the article:

"illegal crossings have dropped dramatically in past years." Kudos to the President.

But even so, Obama can only do so much to stem the tide of misery and deaths that these folks are ever willing to risk to fulfill their dreams to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Immigration reform is needed here and now.

Hopefully some of you are literate and able to comprehend this below. If not, then it is no surprise you would want socialism in this country.

*
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan." All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A....(substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little..

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.

Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections.

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation

Exclusive: The Truth About 'La Raza'

Quote:

"Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the
real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands
of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican
flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento
Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan
(MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has
permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a
racist nation out of the American West.

One of America's greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants
from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as
Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only,
in our national loyalties.

This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants
pouring across our borders, to whom they say:

"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the
notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting
pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became
synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from
a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the
Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3,
2006)

MEChA isn't at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races.
Their founding principles are contained in these words in "El Plan
Espiritual de Aztlan" (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):

"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud
historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our
territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land
of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their
birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare
that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our
inevitable destiny.... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water
the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans.... We
are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of
North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a
nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo.
Fuera de La Raza nada."

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing."

Hey Mexican's

Don't you think you should be putting forth your best effort to stay in your own country and try to change Mexico's immigration policy that is the most racist and unfair in the universe, instead of complaining about the USA lenient immigration policy, while calling us racists while we give you all kinds of free handouts that your own country would never give you.... what a bunch of freakin hypocrites the Mexican's and the Mexican's government are.

Mexico's Immigration Policy

"1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
********
2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.
********
3.. All government business will be conducted in our language.
********
4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are
here.
********
5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
********
6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food
stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will
be deported.
********
7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least
equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
********
8. If foreigners come here and buy land... Options will be restricted.
Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens
naturally born into this country.
********
9.. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a
foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his
policies. These will lead to deportation.
********
10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted
&, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All
assets will be taken from you.

If you cross the N. Korean border illegally, you get 12 yrs. hard labor. If you cross the Afghanistan border illegally, you get shot. If you cross the U.S. border illegally you get a job, a driver's license, food stamps, a place to live, health care, housing & child benefits, education, & tax free business for 7 yrs. No wonder we are a country in debt.

About our US soldiers you are right but is not their fault (i. immigrants ) besides many latino immigrants are in the US army and they are not citizens just residents and last but not least is not easy to apply legally basically you have to be rich not easy but I feel your anger I feel the same way I know people who live off the government it really pisses me off , let me tell you it would be better if they get a ssn because they are not going to be able to lie about their income so they will get not any benefits .
There are loop holes. Ever here about the ITIN number? Google fraud plus ITIN and see the massive tax refunds paid to NON Citizens. This is only one loophole
